RF/Microwave Training Webinar Series
Title: Mixers and Frequency Conversion
Date: September 28, 2017
Time: 8am PT / 11am ET
Sponsored by: National Instruments
Presented by: Allen Podell
Frequency conversion is a critical function in all wireless systems. A key component used to accomplish this is the mixer. Designers need to understand different mixer topologies and specifications in order to meet their system requirements. This webinar provides a brief overview of frequency conversion and introduces the mixer as the component used to accomplish this function.
Allen Podell, an IEEE Life Fellow, has designed monolithic and discrete circuits on gallium arsenide, silicon, sapphire, and plastic. With a solid foundation in device-circuit interaction, he specializes in the practical realization of modern circuit techniques. An author of over 70 technical papers, he founded three companies (Anzac Electronics, Podell Associates, and Pacific Monolithics) and he holds 60 US patents ranging from IMPATT diodes, silicon power transistors, and 3-decade bandwidth microwave components, stereo demodulators, antennas, gallium arsenide integrated circuits - and more recently, high power, wideband components. Previously, as VP of Technology at Besser Associates and later at Podell Consulting, he has taught advanced wireless design courses and provided consulting services worldwide.
